If my husband has just passed away and my N-400 is still pending, what will happen?
Question Details: I possess a 10-year green card. Will his passing affect my naturalization application? I had my fingerprinting. I did apply for the 3-year rule before we were married for 3 years, but now due to his passing, do I need to wait for the full 5 years? Would my case be rejected without a refund? What will happen next?
You will not get a refund but at the time of the interview, you may be denied and told to reapply because technically you are no longer married due to your spouse's death. However, they may make an exception because at the time of filing you were married and were eligible to apply for citizenship after 3 years.
